What is LaunchAPEX?

Started by a small group of business owners and community leaders, LaunchAPEX strives to develop successful entrepreneurs who have limited access to business training and networking opportunities. This program is dedicated to assisting current Apex residents who want to take their business to the next level or have a strong business idea.

Our program is modeled after LaunchDETROIT, a successful community building program created in 2013 by Rotary leaders in Detroit.

An Apex Initiative

Our network of local partners in Apex provide a broad network of support and resources for our entrepreneurs.
